OOTD – Leopard Print and Tulle

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday; half way through the week already! Today was my Wednesday morning meeting with the nonprofit organization I am interning for. We recently launched our Indiegogo campaign and are working hard to reach our goal of $15,000 in order to give children of varying abilities the opportunity to participate in gymnastics.  It has been thrilling being part of a great cause in my community!

OOTD – Red and Black Stripes Business Casual

I put on a pair of black tights since it was a bit chilly this morning (remarkable for Florida weather) and kept the black and white theme going with the light heels. The jacket adds a nice polished feel to the outfit as well as added warmth! -Outfit- Espirit Red Pencil Skirt  (Thrifted $4) Banana Republic Striped Blouse  (Thrifted $4) BCBGeneration Sunglasses [Similar] (Thrifted $3) Merdona [Target …
